Dedicated hosting paid only with coppers?

Post by Tathar » 05 Oct 2009 07:28

I heard in an older topic that there are server hosts that offer TM servers paid for only in coppers. Unfortunately the topic got locked, and I never got to ask what hosts offer it. My clan needs such a hosting plan (or a free one would be even better) since we don't have any budget for paying with real money.

For several months, I've been hosting FFR's only TM server on my own computer, but now that I'm living at college, I no longer have that option. We tried a few free hosting offers and contests while we still had some time to make the transition, but never managed to actually get anywhere with any of them. Now that we currently don't have a server, we've taken a major hit in activity and interest in TM. Since we don't have the money for a paid one, we now need a free server or a coppers-paid server to keep the clan alive.

So, anyone know someone who can help us out? Or better yet, anyone willing to offer a server to us?

Howmany coppers are you willing to pay per month?
How big has to be the server?

I'd rather stick to the original questions. Specifics can be brought up later.

I'm just curious... what's the exchange rate for coppers, would you say..?

10k = $2.50..?

I know, that's a pitty cuz it was a nice action.

In my team i distribute a lot of tags and thus i'm in need of a constant resource of coppers.
That's why i react to this topic.
I can host a server but i have limited bandwith so it maxes out at about 10 players...

Is 10k per month for an 8-slot server really going rate? That sounds really extreme.

You must take into account that a server takes up space, bandwidth, resources, and time. It's also not a start and forget process.

TMU was for sale for 40000 coppers.
In store it costs 40€
So 1€=1000 coppers.
Now follow this link.
So a 8(+4) server should be about 5000 coppers a month, without someone doing the "customisation", as on a rental server you will have to do that yourselves.
